I decided to do a nano in my bedroom. Started with a used biocube 14 and cut the top off and polished the glass edge to make it rimless. I then did some cutting to fit a decent skimmer and started building a small hood to keep it tidy.
here is a few pics of the progress.

Cut the hood off

Painted it white to match the stand.

Painted the background black as it was faded....

Since I'm very fond of clams and amazed by there color and presence the add to a tank I figured it's time to have a show off your tridacna thread. I'll start the show:) This is my large squamosa I've had for about 4 years and my maxima I've had for 2. It's amazing that the squamosa was only 3" when I got him. 20150422_165545.jpg

My ATO container holds 5.5 gallons of water.

I have never put kalk in an ATO because I have heard that it burns out the pumps too quickly and can cause failure of the tubing. Makes sense it's such a strong base.

So if I mix 1 gallon of water with 2 tsp of kalk should the mixture be diluted enough as to not cause issues with the pump if that gallon of kalk mixture is diluted in the 4 gallons in the ATO?

TIA

This used to be a female Anthias. Not necessarily unusual for a female to change to male in this species, but I already have a male in the tank!

A few more tank pics using my new Nikon D750 on my build thread.
